We were so glad to stay here having driven north after Tropical Cyclone Marcia had hit and arrrive in sunshine. The room was fine for us and had everything we needed and the pool was very good to use. The couple who are the owners/managers were very helpful with advice about local places to eat and visit etc. Although we... More

Phoned up to get last minute room for my sister and elderly parents - the wonderful relief managers couldn't be more helpful and friendly and made a traumatic time extremely easy for us all. The room was spotless and well maintained and obviously doesn't compete with the brand new apartment style complexes. If you prefer old fashioned service and hospitality... More

Stayed here 4 nights recently. Rooms neat and tidy. Good bed. Large walk in shower, toiletries and fluffy white towels. Ample wardrobe space. Air con and 2 ceiling fans. Self contained with fridge, hot plates, microwave, jug, toaster and plenty of utensils etc to cook a meal. Shopping centre within walking distance. Nice view and balcony from 2nd floor rooms....

I had to stay at Tannum Sands on business this week, Fantastic name but the place does not live up to the expectations you might have. Got back to my room one afternoon on the third day and had no TV working, was told by Manager "it's tuning day" and the TV's don't work, and then complained to me that... More

Loved staying here as it was handy to EVERYTHING!! Shops are within walking distance and you can see the ocean. The rooms were neat and clean and it was very welcoming. Loved having a kitchenette to do any meal. Would recommend this place and area to anyone.

I stay at this place regular and have always found the standard very high and the size of the rooms great, But like the others say here I found the staff vey difficuld to deal with and the smile has been lost in their sad lives. I will still reccommend this place to anyone and you will not walk away... More

Having stayed at the Reef Adventureland for many years after construction in the early 90's through to 97 it is pleasant to see that the propoerty has been maintained to near new standard over the past 20 years. The rooms are clean, comfortable and fresh - a far cry from properties of this age in the CQ and NQ regions.... More

We stopped off here on our way north and were impressed with the standard of the rooms and resort in general. They are spacious and in close location to the local pub which we had a great dinner at. As Gladstone accommodation can be so expensive - this is a great alternative.

The lady who runs the hotel is extremely unwelcoming, unfriendly and lacking in customer service skills. She was hostile to us from from the moment we walked in the door. I will never stay here again.
